Dump To Release EPs

Dump, the one-man side project of art-pop act Yo La Tengo

bassist James McNew, is set to release a pair of EPs in the coming

months on Shrimper Records: Women in Rock (December) and a

cassette-only release of the The Artist covers (due next year).

Among the covers that McNew has already recorded for the cassette are: "The

Beautiful Ones," "Erotic City," "When You Were Mine," "How Come You Don't

Call Me Anymore" and "Pop Life." Touring behind the Dump EPs looks

unlikely, though, as McNew is currently concentrating on work with Yo La

Tengo and jokingly says that he plans to "retire [Dump] from live

performance altogether and never appear in public again."
